We went for dinner. The catch of the day fish and skirt steak were good. The cocktails were tasty - white sangria and half cuban. Sides were good too. Friendly service.

We just stayed at the Ritz, and enjoyed dining at the Bistro twice. The first time was for sandwiches at about 10 pm - we arrived at the hotel late and hungry, and they were most accommodating. Our server, Reginald was so good to us and made the wine and meal even more enjoyable. Another day we ate there for... More

Our server was very nice. I had a cheeseburger and my friend had tacos. Our bill was $65. It wasn't bad, but in no way was it above average. I wouldn't go there again.

For a luxury hotel, this place is horrible. I work in the hospitality industry and decided to take my family for brunch in a different environment. I was highly disappointed. The customer service was God awful, where they didn't even realize we were seated for at least 3O minutes before we were served, most of the dishes obviously was dirty... More

We enjoyed our dinner at this restaurant. We wanted a lighter dinner after a late lunch so we both had sandwiches. My husband had a spinach salad and french dip and I had a hamburger. The atmosphere was relaxing.

I ordered room service & the bistro prepares the meals. The lobster, fresh oysters & asparagus was excellent. Breakfast was also excellent. I ordered pool service from the restaurant & it was top notch.

We used to go there very often before the Ritz bought the place and were happy to know that not much have changed. Food is delicious, the staff is so good and friendly and the view is simply stunning. Love living in South Florida :)

Had lunch at the Bistro mid-August 2015. Expected top quality and service from a Ritz-Carlton. Instead, we had tasteless food and wine by the glass that was vented. No reaction from management when I brought the problem to their attention. The only outstanding things that day were the price and the automatic service charge. Keep clear, there are many better...
